Top Recruiter

As a special recruitment incentive each year, the Order’s top recruiter from our Insurance and Non- Insurance Territories are recognized at the annual Supreme Convention.

This year, here in Toronto, we honor a special recruiter who brought in 665 new members this past fraternal year: Danilo Leonor Martinez of Visayas, who is the 2015-2016 recipient of the Orderwide Top Recruiter Award. We would also like to honor the top recruiter from our Insurance Territories, Walter “Wally” N. Streit of Alberta, who recruited 160 members this past year and is our only member who has recruited over 2,000 members.
